Vintage Bibliomysteries: Books Can Be Fatal! — Every writer should check this out. Hilarious.

The beauty of fish bones

What You're Doing Is Important — Skepchick on the value of skepticism. (Via Bad Astronomy.)

It’s been too long since we walked on the Moon — Nixon, Elvis and Apollo 17.

Autism And Wealth — Hey, look, actual (and interesting) science on autism. Gee, fact-free ideology such as antivax is so much easier to get worked up about. (Via Freakonomics.)

Interesting autism data. It does match my own perceptions as both parent of a child on the autistic spectrum, and as a special education professional.

I had to laugh at the somewhat pretentious comment by the PhD--"I've been researching autism for three years now..." (emphasis mine).

Only three years, buddy? You're just a baby in autism world...
